Gastown’s Celebrated Salt Cellar a Fitting Location for “With Glowing Hearts” Benefit

Social Media Club VancouverForget Eat, Pray, Love. At the first-ever Geek Gourmet Dinner hosted by Social Media Club Vancouver, the central theme will be Meet, Eat, and Give Back.

Limited to 40 registrants, the special dinner will be held Tuesday, September 21st, from 7-9pm at The Salt Cellar, and organized by Melody “Gourmet” Fury of Vancouver Food Tour.

Below Salt Tasting Room in Blood Alley, one of restaurateur Sean Heather’s celebrated Gastown eateries, The Salt Cellar is a unique space which on Friday and Saturday nights doubles the capacity of Salt.  SMCYVR members will be on hand to network, chat about all things geeky, and generally demystify the cloudy world of social media.

A portion of the evening’s proceeds will assist in the post-production of the independent Vancouver documentary With Glowing Hearts, which focuses on four Vancouver activists and artists living and working in the Downtown East Side and how their lives are changed through social media and community during the 2010 Winter Olympics.

“It’s a story that deserves to be told, the dream of two dedicated film-makers who witnessed a community transformed by social media,” said Lorraine Murphy, president of SMCYVR. “We’re excited to play a part in the grass-roots fund-raising efforts underway to complete this film and release it to a world-wide audience.”


  • Tuesday, September 21st, from 7-9pm
  • Tickets: $40 per person, includes food (menu coming soon), donation, taxes and gratuities
  • Capacity: 40 people
  • Location: Salt Cellar (enter through Salt Tasting Room) – 45 Blood Alley Square, Gastown [map]
